Hi there all,

As everyone knows; in 1870 at the top of the flagstaff of all the flags of the Bavarian infantry battalions (except two) there was the "Sitting Lion of Bavaria".

Do you know if figures of Bavarian infantry standard bearer with this type of flagpole exist for 28 / 30mm figures?

Or where to find such a lion at the scales of 1/56 th or 1/60 th to put at the end of the flagpole of a flag for figures of 28 mm / 30mm.?

Thank you.

There is a suitable lion on Thingiverse if you have , or have a friend with, a 3d printer.
